AUGUSTE BORGET: A Painter-Traveller on the South China Coast
29 June - 9 October 2016 @Macau Museum of Art
In an age before cameras, Borget created realistic pencil sketches, precious watercolours followed later by prints and oil paintings. They offer a unique depiction of the Pearl River Delta in the mid-nineteenth century, and a glimpse of its folk customs and culture. Borget was deeply influenced by his stay on the South China coast.
